jamessmale I'm coming to the end of my first degree and it's causing me to reflect on the past few years. There's been ups and downs but all in all I have had a fantastic time and I'll sorry to see the back of it. I would like to thank my beautiful girlfriend for all the support she has given me over the past 2 and a half years, I don't think I would be where I am today without her. I love you @crizzelward #university #degree #geography #naturalhazards #reflection #graduatingsoon #girlfriend #love #her 5d

pnsn1 Today marks the 4th anniversary of the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. On March 11, 2011, an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 occurred in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan's Tohoku region. The catastrophic tsunami triggered by this earthquake spread across the entire eastern coast of Japan, and throughout the #PacificOcean, killed thousands of people.
Across the Pacific Ocean, residents of the #PacificNorthwest are living in a region that has a similar tectonic setting to that of Japan. An earthquake and tsunami of the same size — or greater — could strike the #PNW at any time. Are you ready for a big earthquake? Take a moment today to remember this great earthquake and think about your own personal preparedness.
Please read the @usgs poster to learn more about the #TohokuEarthquake and #TohokuTsunami: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/poster/2011/20110311.php

Herbert Volcano Caldera — This gorgeous view, taken back in August 2014, is of the summit caldera of Herbert volcano within the Islands of Four Mountains (IFM) in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. This rarely visited, and little known volcano, shows evidence of youthful eruptions although none are known of in historic time. The small patch of wasting glacial ice at the lower-left has receded in the last few decades to expose active fumaroles (lower-right, light colored patch of ground).

osceorg “The #water level rose to about one meter and I didn’t have anywhere to sleep. I had to sleep on the table and I was completely cut off from the rest of the world for four days”, said a female respondent from Svilajnac. Although #naturaldisasters affect all segments of the society they can have different impact on men and women. Have a look into our #report on #Gender Analysis of the Impact of the 2014 #Floods in #Serbia: osce.org/serbia/135021

usgs Buckled Rails — Our #TBT today takes us back to 1964. This photo shows rails that were buckled by lateral movement of the embankment fill toward an underlying culvert which had collapsed. It was taken shortly after the March 27th, 1964 Great Alaska and Tsunami earthquake. The 9.2 earthquake occurred in the Prince William Sound region of Alaska. The earthquake lasted a full 4.5 minutes with its epicenter about 6 miles (10 km) east of the mouth of College Fiord.
This event helped confirm the theory of plate tectonics and provided firsthand insight on earthquake processes, tsunami generation, and the impacts of these phenomena on communities, both locally and across the Pacific. At several places in Port Valdez, Alaska, tsunami run-up was more than 100 feet. This great earthquake and ensuing tsunamis took 131 lives and caused about $2.3 billion in property loss (equivalent to $311 million in 1964). Learn more about this historic event and watch a video about the Great Alaska Earthquake at http://on.doi.gov/GreatAKQuake

osceorg This is the reservoir of the Nurek #hydropower station in #Tajikistan, where the #OSCE assists with the #sustainable use and sound management of #naturalresources. Natural disasters do not respect political borders and their increased frequency has only proven that #climatechange, disaster risk reduction and #security are interconnected. Find out how the OSCE is fostering transborder #cooperation in this report from the 22d OSCE #Economic and #Environmental Forum: bit.ly/1DwO1wp.

usgs We're back with a new #SelfieSunday...it's been awhile! This is a photo of Jessica Ball and David John from our Menlo Park, CA office. Jessica is a Mendenhall Fellow with the USGS and David is a Research Geologist. Jessica says, "Standing on the boardwalks over the Bumpass Hell hydrothermal area in Lassen Volcanic National Park. David John and I were scoping out potential sites where I could conduct geophysical surveys that will quantify the volumes of water in hydrothermally altered rock. It's a very important factor to consider when evaluating where collapses, debris flows and lahars might occur on stratovolcanoes, which is the topic of my Mendenhall fellowship!" #USGS #science #volcanic #Lassen #debrisflow #naturalhazards #SciSelfieSunday 3mon

stellare At the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco close to 25.000 Earth and space scientists gather every year to discuss among others natural hazards like Earthquakes. The San Francisco area itself is prone to Earthquakes, expecting even a big one. Here you see what a quake can do to the Golden Gate construction. #agu2014 #agu #earthobservations #earthquake #naturalhazards #quake #sanfrancisco #sf #california #geophysics #science @agu #scientists #goldengate #bridge 3mon
